BELGRADE – The opening of chapters is now an issue for EU institutions, and Serbia will work toward its membership in the bloc by putting reforms in place and sending good messages of stability in the region, Minister responsible for EU integration Jadranka Joksimovic said on Sunday.

Joksimovic told reporters she expected Chapters 23 and 24 to be opened by the end of June.

“If just one EU member state does not support, or has a different opinion, that is an issue for the EU, the European Commission and EU institutions. I believe that the talks on this matter will continue in the European Commission, within the group on enlargement,” Minister Joksimovic said, referring to Croatia’s decision to obstruct Serbia’s EU path.

“We will keep doing our job, bringing our legislation in line with the EU acquis,” Joksimovic said at a remembrance ceremony for the innocent victims of the Ustasha pogrom in the Nazi puppet Independent State of Croatia (NDH) at the Yugoslav Film Archive in Belgrade.
